Okay I think this will be all for tonight….
Okay, so I was just playing call of duty and as usual, I’ve been distracted by flags. Anyone know if these are based in reality, or are they entirely fictional? Might have to post this on r/vex if no-one knows!
I’ll do you one better: here’s a picture of the actual flagpole.
“Overrun Countries: Greece”, 1943 US postage stamp.
Some day, lad, all this will be yours…
Flag of the monks in Mount Athos, Greece.
Crete was an autonomous state under Ottoman suzerainty from 1898 until 1913. Its flag was based on the Greek flag of the time. The red field and white star represented the authority of the Ottoman sultan.
In recent years, the flag of the Cretan State has become a controversial symbol in Greece. The airline Sky Express adopted a logo based on the flag when it launched in 2005, but was forced to change it after some public outcry.
